This event is free to the public.

The excitement includes a performance by the Marine Corps Base Quantico Party Band, the ribbon breaking ceremony and the presentation of the first SuperSize Goodie Bag.

Runners will need to retrieve their race materials at Packet Pick-up, part of the MCM Health and Fitness Expo by GE, located inside the DC Armory. Race materials include the participant bib number, B-tag and MCM Event Program.
If you did not get your ecard, please come to Information table in the Packet Pick-up with your ID.
IMPORTANT! UPS Baggage Sticker will be attached to the reverse side of every MCM and MCM10K bib. The sticker features the runner's bib number and the assigned UPS truck to be utilized for baggage drop off and pick up on event day. Carefully peel the front of the sticker off the backing and attached to the clear plastic bag to facilitate easy identification by UPS volunteers.
Runners will then proceed to the Health and Fitness Expo by GE to receive their coveted mock neck participant shirt, safety pins, a commemorative MCM patch and the informative event program.
To pick up their items, runners need to download and print their E-Confirmation Card in early October. A photo ID is also required.
SUPER SIZING THE FUN

The MCM Health and Fitness Expo, supported by nearly 300 military and civilian volunteers, offers more than 200 booths and interactive centers for enjoyment by an expected 100,000 runners and guests. MCM and MCM10K participants are affluent, educated, active individuals. Awarding no prize money, "The People’s Marathon" boasts a race field void of elite athletes, instead celebrating the accomplishments and dedication of its runners who hail from every state and more than 50 countries.
